N/M shoulda searched first, found an old thread.
i'm interested post the link to the thread you found... thanks.
search for 27x40 and it'll come up..
anyway the end result was, I bought a 27x40 aluminum frame from www.americanframe.com and I'll get glass cut locally.
Go to your local Hobby Lobby (or other crafts store), and get the modular frames. You buy the 27 inch side and then the 40 inch side. Get the store to cut the glass to that size, and a backing board, and Voila!!!! Not that expensive!
You can see my frames on my site below.
You can also find a few at www.showoffdisplays.com.
If your poster is at all valuable (and you want it to look good forever), be sure to get Museum quality plexiglass that blocks UV rays. A 27"x40" piece should cost you about $40.
And get acid-free foamcore backing as well ($10 at Michael's).
Read this link:
Many Suncoast Video (the movie stores in the mall) carry decent 27x40 frames for cheap (around $25 I think).
The Suncoast store near me did not carry frames for a long time, but within the last three to six months, they started carrying a new 27x41 frame.
They used to have a more expensive wood frame and a cheaper plastic frame where the four sides were separate and removable. The new frames are more lightweight and are a one-piece black plastic border that actually is glued to the plexiglass on the sides. I prefer these new frames quite a bit.
Incidentaly, I am only framing fairly recent posters for decoration and not preservation, so I am not concerned about the cheap nature of the frames.
I looked at this thread, and for a short moment, thought "When the heck did I write this...?"
